I didn't want to be a ballboy till I saw the money Diener is making! :-o
I got to go shave my face now.
You don't have to say my face in that context. Only JR and woode assume something else when someone says they have to shave.
That depends on what he means by "face."
A third Mummy movie? I dunno...
36682...It will be chock-a-block with action and snappy repartee.
36686 hello newms
36687...is that a Rhodie accent I hear?
A little number in between trying to stay awake.
The Hoffster it has been a while. How goes things?
36689...he appears. He vanishes. He is the mysterious Kaufman.
Did it? I liked it a lot.
I look on those movies as examplary of my worst parenting moment...so far. The oldest girl came home from school with "The Egyptian Dead Fellow" and another girl (then 10 years or so) wanted to watch it. I said OK, despite the fact that I hadn't previewed it. She was completely terrified of the scenes in which Imhotep draws the moisture from his victims. She didn't sleep for weeks after. To this day, she doesn't like listening to the Mandy Moore CD she got for Christmas that year and still associates with the feelings she was feeling then. Bad dad!
I thought the second Mummy movie was pretty lame. This new one looks okay, but will probably blow also. Especially since Brendan Fraser is going for complete media saturation with the Journey to the Center of the Earth movie out also.
I thought the second Mummy movie was pretty lame.
Rick = same as in the first movie
Ardeth Bey = same
Evie = same
Imhotep = same
Anak Sa Namon = same
additional baddie > better than the first movie
comic baddie < not as good as Beni
Alex < no kid
Izzie > Winston
monkeys > scarabs
CG battle scenes = same
So the lame part has to come down to The Rock as a scorpion. Is that it?
The first was better. Still I enjoyed each of the movies. I like Brandon Fraser.
As the sun began to shine
I felt emptiness inside
Around me the world revived
But I just stared into the light
All that I left behind
Lost forever in the night
The dragons' eyes my sword had dried
Now it's my time to cry

Thanks for that clear and incisive assessment of the relative merits and characteristics of the two movies. Are ya certain that the real Arcadian posted that? Looks to me like "Kemo" has taken over Arcadian's identity. Except that Kemo says "lol" once in every line of text, separates his rambling notions with ellispes....and capitalizes words FOR NO APPARENT reason.
I was keeping it simple maybe real as well.
I smiled when I saw the mentioned poster was cited and told "well said."
One might agree the the sentiment, however; it was far from being well said.
I just thought the second Mummy movie was a little hokey compare to the first one. The characters can't be described as the same because they still have to deliver dialog that may/may not be of the same quality as in the first movie. The character interaction in the first one was entertaining because they were new characters. A lot of the time, when you take proven characters and expound on them, the interaction seems strained, like the producers/writers are trying to stretch that success from the first one through a second one and had about half a good movie that could've either lengthened the first one, or made a semi-good second one.
I liked the movie just fine, but still found it not as good as the first one. I like all the characters, and the actors who portray them. I'll watch the third one, albeit on DVD, and I'm interested to see how the new Evie will play out. Rachel Weisz apparently isn't in the new one?
Is that good enough for you, Putty?!
Oh, and thanks for the dime, Raskol! CENTAVO FOR ME! LOL!
